    I've taken these rare minis off the sale table and moved them to the potential trading table. Feel free to PM me with trade offer lists, keeping in mind that I am only interested in equally uncommon or rare, very miniature or micro miniature species. I have very limited growing space, in only one terrarium, so anything bigger than a few inches will be too big. My growing conditions are 68+F night / 70-75+ day). Thank you in advance for any fair offers.

    Bulbophyllum striatellum
    - division(s) with about 6-10 bulbs

    Bulbophyllum "unknown" (was labeled originally as minutulum but it is not)
    - division(s) with about 8-15 bulbs

    Barbosella orbicularis
    - division(s) with about 6-10 leaf nodes

    I would be interested in a division of the Barbosella orbicularis.

    I have a small Pleurothallis sp. that I received as P. calyptrostele but later saw the seller offering it simply as sp. 'Panama', stating that it might not be calyptrostele. I haven't gotten it to bloom yet, but so far it has been a great grower for me and not too picky about conditions. I have only seen this one offered once or twice in the past year and it would seem to match your growing conditions in your paludarium.

    I would be offering a similar-sized division (6-10 leaves) from the portion on the upper half of the mount. I also have several smaller Peperomia sp. (such as the Panamanian form of emarginella growing on this mount) if you are interested in any smaller non-orchids. Let me know if you'd be interested in a trade. Here are a few photos:

    Matt, if you don't have it, you should take JohnsonS's offer. It is a neat species and it probably is Phoephila peperomioides or maybe another species from that genus.
    Be careful with the tiny cuttings (unestablished/bare-root division of tiny species), Once the moisture is gone, they can dry up very quickly and die. 99% of time, it is impossible to get the totally dehydrated tiny cutting back to life, so take extra care when you prepare it for shipping.

    Thanks for the info, Tom.

    Matt, I can certainly offer a larger cutting if there is any concern and, of course, if you are interested. I am also on Dendroboard and I can provide selling/trading references if needed.

    I really wish I could edit my first post in this thread to add the following info at the top...hopefully people will read down to this and see it...

    I am also highly interested in any RARE micro, tropical fern species (max 2-3" frond size) such as:

    Micro tropical Crepidomanes sp. such as C. minutum (aka Gonocormus minutus)
    Micro tropical Asplenium sp such as A. holophlebium
    Micro tropical Trichomanes sp.

    I already have, and am not interested in, the common stuff like Microphyllum, Pyrrosia, etc.

    You probably have better chance to get an offer for the non-orchid plants at Dendroboard.
